Through the Expand program, WP's objective is to expand access to preventative care and healthcare services, with a specific emphasis on preventative and infectious diseases and extending medical care, psychological support, and spiritual counseling (mind-body-spirit treatment approach) to vulnerable populations including, orphans, vulnerable children and their caregivers, pregnant women, the elderly, and other displaced, underserved, and impoverished groups.
WP has partnered with Comfort Ministries to provide access to healthcare through medical camps to orphans that live in the Bliss and Angel Houses and community members who live in the slums and/or work near the garbage dumps in Hyderabad, India. Many of the community members have limited or poor access to health care and live in polluted and impoverished areas, which further complicate various health conditions and promote the spread of infectious diseases.
Over 900 attendees have received care from primary care physicians, internists, optometrists, and pathologists.
Participants receive free healthcare treatment, medical supplies, cataract surgery and eye glasses.
